Graz is Austria’s second largest city,
located in the south-eastern corner of
the European Union, and an important
hub whose significance will increase
still further since the enlargement
of the EU.
The capital of Styria lends
itself ideally as a communication
centre in this expanding community,
and provides the perfect setting for
successful conferences and congresses.
Situated in the pulsating heart of
Graz’ old town - a UNESCO World
Heritage Site - Grazer Congress is the
perfect venue. four universities with
more than 35,000 students, numerous
scientific institutions and usinesses of
international acclaim have made Graz
an international landmark of innovative
research and development.
Following the nomination of Graz as Cultural Capital
of Europe 2003, the city has deservedly received
international attention. The city owes this title to its
thriving cultural scene not only in this year. 2003 has
put Graz on the map and with the activities staged
so far, the city has become known to a wider public
without losing any of its charm.
